I was delighted to receive a little book from a reader in Pamplona, Spain, about Saints Nunilo and Alodia.
Our saints, little girls, were 9th c. virgin martyrs in Huesca, Spain. They were born to a Muslim father and Christian mother. However, they chose their mother’s Christianity.
During the Emirate of Abd ar-Rahman II it came to pass that these little girls were executed as apostates according to Sharia law.
They were on my mind again as I had a conversation last evening which concerned the persecution of Christians in Egypt.
